    Dish 500 & Pro Twin LNB

    Took my 510 on a one month out of town trip. Have a Dish 500 and a Pro twin LNB. I have no trouble picking up the 119 satellite at 85% but can't seem to get 110 at all. I was told the PRO twin LNB has a switch built in so I just connected my 510 directly to the #1 output. There are a lot of...

    811 & OTA HD Picture

    I put in an OTA antenna on my 811 and picked up my local digital CBS station at >85% signal strength. My question is this. The HD programs on in prime time just don't look that impressive as compared to the satellite stuff (HDNet, DISCHD etc.). Anybody else notice this? :cool:

    How many PVR's on DHP

    Well CSR Roulette hits again. I am on DHP and am wondering how many PVR's I can have. One CSR says only one, while another says two. I think the discrepency lies in the fact if you lease or buy the PVR. I am willing to buy the PVR, but don't want to if they won't activate it. Which is the...

    510 & 811

    811 - Curious of Picture

    I am on the waiting list for the 811. I am just curious of the HD picture. I have a Sony Plasma 42" with a 16 x 9 screen. When you watch HD movies and such, does it fill the screen or are there bars on top and bottom. And how about regular broadcast's? Thanks for any info.

    522, How many cables

    Thinking of getting a 522, here is my question. The place where I want to put it has one cable run from a SuperDish. Can I use a splitter on that cable and use all the functions of the 522, or do I have to run another cable?
